      I graduated from Barnard College in May of 2003 A few weeks later, I left for Kenya with the Peace Corps, where I spent two years teaching Public Health and HIV education at a small orphans center a few hours from the Ugandan border During that time, I began learning Swahili and first encountered the literary magazine that later became the focus of my dissertation Once I returned home, I worke I graduated from Barnard College in May of 2003 A few weeks later, I left for Kenya with the Peace Corps, where I spent two years teaching Public Health and HIV education at a small orphans center a few hours from the Ugandan border During that time, I began learning Swahili and first encountered the literary magazine that later became the focus of my dissertation Once I returned home, I worked as a teacher s aide, a cashier at a bookstore, a freelance reporter, a nanny, and a research coordinator at Mass General Hospital before enrolling in the PhD program in English at Harvard in the fall of 2007.My primary field of study is postcolonial and transnational literatures, with an emphasis on contemporary African fiction My dissertation, Dodging the Language Question English, Politics, and the Life of a Kenyan Literary Magazine, investigates the artistic and linguistic strategies employed by the literary magazine Kwani during a period of intense social and political upheaval Since I ve been at Harvard, I ve been lucky enough not only to be able to return to Nairobi to continue my research, but to invite the editor of Kwani to campus to speak before an enthusiastic gathering of undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty Last summer, I also received a grant to travel to the Democratic Republic of Congo, where I volunteered at the Salaam Kivu International Film Festival and met a wide range of talented artists from from all over eastern and central Africa One of the most rewarding opportunities I ve had during my time here has been working as a research assistant for Caroline Elkins when she served as an expert witness on behalf of Mau Mau veterans who are suing the British government because of atrocities committed during the colonial period You can read about that fascinating subject here and here.My teaching philosophy, which emphasizes clarity, cultural sensitivity, and ethical engagement, stems directly from my time as an educator with the Peace Corps In addition to my two junior tutorials for English majors How to Write About Africa and The New Global Novel I ve worked as a TF in a variety of departments and programs at Harvard, including English, African and African American Studies, and Gen Ed I am currently a tutor in History and Literature, advising junior and senior theses in the postcolonial field I also teach in the wider Boston community in my role as a Community Awareness and Prevention volunteer with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center

    3. This story made me uncomfortable on so many levels.I read it after reading that it had gone viral online and I was curious to see why Now I wish I hadn t done that Which is funny, considering that the MC, too, wishes she hadn t done something.The story is that of Margot, a 20 year old sopho, who meets Robert while working at a movie theatre It s a story of texting, dating, the different meanings of intimacy and sex, expectations and.I must honestly say that I didn t like Margot I mi This story m [...]


    4. What is good about the story is that it has generated so much heat This is great for the writer Just on the strength of this story, she seems to have arrived on the literary scene I liked reading it But there are also things that I did not follow I could not help questioning certain aspects of this story.It revolves around Margot who goes on date with a man far older than her She gets disgusted and disconnects herself from him.The guy seems to be a jerk Someone who knows how to flirt and What is [...]

Cat PersonBy Kristen RoupenianA date gone wrong I don t see why it sparked so many discussions it s one in a miriad dates when you discover the person you thought you like actually you didn t As for his response, most of those rejected feel and act the same true for both parties involved So, nothing out of the ordinary and full of truisms anyway.May be read in New Yorker here


    7. Interestingly my former, quite elaborate and scathing, review is gone So let me just reiterate that I have rarely read such an epitome of a misandrist, sexist story written by a woman as this one Something is very awry between American men and women, and it most assuredly is not what the author allows her heroine to lament in her stead The female protagonist is a sexist, fat shaming pig, and the male protagonist has so much of no clue at all, that his intelligence seems to stay within reach o In [...]
